Minot Aero Center, at North Dakota’s Minot International Airport (MOT), perseveres despite serious weather conditions causing record flooding in area. Officials at MOT issued a statement Tuesday saying the airport, perched atop a hill on the north part of town, will remain fully operational.
“Our dedicated, 24-hour staff are prepared to service incoming traffic as we remain open for business with full amenities, including line service, heated hangar space, catering, lodging arrangements and much more,” states Warren Pietsch, president of Pietsch Aircraft Restoration and Repair and Minot Aero Center.
Co-located with U.S. Customs, Minot Aero Center will also continue to offer 24 customs services during the flood, officials said.
Air BP Aviation Services Vice President of Sales and Marketing Steve McCullough comments, “We respect Minot Aero Center’s determination to not let the floods in the area impact their customers. Air BP Aviation Services, Warren Pietsch and airport management are working closely to make sure fuel supply is readily available.”
